Double Up For Valentine Day

2009-02-03 36

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Thats why this year we want you to pick your own Lomo Valentine! (This is not cheating btw!) We know that you Lomo guys have had your eyes on some of the pretty Lomo girls out there and that some of you Lomo ladies just digg the way some of our Lomo gentlemen move with their cameras! Valentines should not only be about couples either and we value your friendships as well. Either way its time for you to get together and bring your friendship to a whole new level! But lets keep it analogue shall we? And what’s more analogue than doubles?

The way this works is the following:

  • Ask someone “out” (does not have to be boy/girl)
  • Shot a roll of film of yourself with a romantic surrounding
  • Send the roll to your valentine who then shots the second layer of themselves in a romantic setting
  • You will be united on your negatives :)
  • Once you are done – send Lucas an email (lucas.jakobsson@lomography.com) with your pictures

Of course we got some prizes in hand for our newly found sweethearts! The best doubles will each be shipped the newest Diana F+ clone Mr.Pink

Will you be my valentine?

    Cool Idea... To bad I have absolutely no time for shooting lately and already 2 doubles pending...
    I have a question reguarding the doubles though... I tried a few times to submit a blog entry for "doubles with you" but it won't work out... Any clue about what I'm doing wrong? Or is it a bug from the beta??

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
